The compositions of Phobos and Deimos have remained controversial despite multiple Earth- and space-based observations acquired during the last 40 years. Phobos is composed of at least two spectral units that are both dark yet distinct at visible to near infrared wavelenghts; a spectrally red-sloped "red" unit covers most of the moon and a less red-sloped "blue" unit is present in the ejecta of the approximately 9-km diameter impact crater Stickney [1,2]. Deimos is similar spectrally to Phobos' "red" unit . Here we report results from mapping mineral absorptions on Phobos and Deimos using visible/near infrared observations from the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM). We find evidence for an absorption feature at 0.65 m in the Phobos red unit and Deimos that is reproducible in observations from other instruments. The phase responsible is uncertain but may be a Fe-bearing phyllosilicate and/or graphite, consistent with the notion that Phobos and Deimos have compositions similar to CM carbonaceous chondrites .
